    The distro choice will be your own, it' really a matter of preference. However because you have 4GB of RAM I would recommend using a 64-bit system so you can avoid the 32 bit barrier and the PAE messing. Check the polls in the forum for popular distributions.

    Hello,
    I guess CentOS with Cpanel is the best option. As CentOS has numerous advantages over some of the other clone projects including an active and growing user community, quickly rebuilt, tested, and QA'ed errata packages, an extensive developers who are contactable and responsive, multiple free support avenues.
    Otherwise RedHat EL AS4, and Fedora Core 4 are always there. Oh and ya Suse i dought for servers.
    Regards,

    There are no accurate answers for your type of question. I suggest you take both for a spin and see which one works best for you.

    I agree with daark.child. You should try as many as you can and decide yourself. If you have any other question, feel free to start a new thread.
